Travel Blog Reader Challenge – My Music Store

I received a reader challenge from Alicia!

Hey there!

I just sent a donation and have a travel mission for you if you accept.

In Golden Valley, if you are traveling out that far, I want you to meet Linda at My Music Store. There is a bike path that goes from the Twins Stadium along Hwy 55. The store is at 55 & Winnetka. She’s one of the owners. The store is only open until 6pm today. Go discuss the animal humane society, urban wildlife and anything else. I think you will find you have many passions in common.

She’s a really neat person that I think you will enjoy meeting. I teach at that store and consider her to be one of my dearest friends. I’m going to leave an envelope with her with some cash for you to find supper tonight.

Thanks Alicia, for the donation and the challenge!

My Music Store is in Golden Valley, which is just outside of my usual Minneapolis limits I have for today, but it’s right on the border so I thought I’d give it a go. The shop is located in a strip mall and it took me a few turns around the parking lot to find it, but find it I did!

I walked in and like Stevebe’s this morning, the place was hopping – it’s almost like it’s a Saturday and people are out and about or something. A woman came out to help me and I said – in what I found to be an unnecessarily ominous tone – “I was told to ask for Linda.” Turns out this was Linda. Alicia had told her to expect me, and she led me back to her office. There she handed me an envelope from Alicia. *blush* Thanks for dinner Alicia!

I’m sure I came off like a crazy woman as I blathered quickly about how I didn’t have much time and thank you for being game to sit to down with me and I’m sure we could talk for ages but I really only have about ten minutes so what should we talk about? Aha! You own a music shop, what do you play? You must play an instrument.

(pause for breath)

Linda says, “I play the radio.”

She explained that she didn’t play any instruments, which she admitted was a little strange for a music store owner, but there it is. I asked about her animal interests – since Alicia said to ask her about that – and Linda lit right up. She is involved with Wildlife Rehab and Rescue, which works with the Animal Humane Society. From their website:

Wildlife Rehabilitation and Release, Inc. (WRR) is a non profit tax exempt organization of people who share a common concern for orphaned and injured wildlife.  Members include licensed rehabilitators who care for orphaned and injured birds, mammals, amphibians, and reptiles in their homes. Volunteers assist with the care of wild animals brought to the Animal Humane Society (AHS) in Golden Valley,  provide education and guidance through written material, recorded messages, and educational programs. Volunteers also support WRR through fundraising, publicity, and other numerous support activities.

Linda is a very opinionated person, which rocks. I asked her for a quote and she said “I give a lot of free advice, whether it’s asked for or not.” She has little patience for human encroachment on natural areas, and believes that if we’re going to interact with nature and wildlife that we had to do so responsibly.

She groaned when I asked, but allowed me to take a quick photo of us together. Apparently neither of us knew where the camera was. Which is strange since I was holding it.

I asked if she would like me to promote any upcoming events at the store. She asked me to tell you all about the Guitar Toss. Here it is:

The Guitar Toss is a benefit for the Animal Humane Society that occurs on the last Saturday of every July. For only a buck a chuck, participants try to toss an unusable guitar into a dumpster. Those that dunk a guitar into the trash, get to choose a prize like a t-shirt, hat, or other swag donated by our various vendors. For each dollar donated, participants receive a numbered ticket that goes into the hopper for a drawing on the following Monday. Prizes for the drawing are guitars, amps, effect pedals, and other cool gear donated by our vendors.

That’s coming up in July. You can learn more about the 2012 Guitar Toss and My Music Store at their official website.

Thank you to Linda for your time and willingness to deal with oddball strangers. Thank you to Alicia for the challenge.

Now, dear readers, was that adventure perhaps worthy of a few bucks that might be donated to the SSA?

      Despite the fact that the Music Store I need to dordle visit is located in Golden Valley, Minnesota, and therefore technically outside of my normal Minneapolis area for the day, I decided to risk going there nonetheless. I had to make a few laps around the parking lot of the strip mall where the store is situated before I finally saw it.

    The “Travel Blog Reader Challenge” could refer to a variety of activities or initiatives related to reading and engaging with travel blogs. Here’s a suggestion for a challenge that could inspire people to explore new destinations and share their experiences:

    Destination Roulette: Participants spin a virtual wheel or randomly select a location from a list of countries or cities around the world. Once they have their destination, they search for travel blogs or articles specifically about that place.

    Read, Explore, Share: Participants read at least three different travel blog posts or articles about the selected destination. They immerse themselves in the content, learning about the culture, attractions, cuisine, and experiences available in that location.

    Plan Your Adventure: After reading about the destination, participants create a hypothetical travel itinerary based on the information they gathered from the blogs. They outline activities they would like to do, places they want to visit, and accommodations they would consider staying at.
    In traveling your need for photos and video problems are solved through this app remini mod apk
